  • individuals registered on the pharmacy technician register who does not reside in Alberta, who has declared their choice of district for the purposes of voting for a pharmacy technician member of Council.

Voters in District A and District B watch your inbox for the following:

  2. Messages from the candidates. To support the election process, ACP will send two emails on candidates’ behalf to voters in each district. Watch your inbox for these messages. A biographical sketch and picture of each candidate will also be posted on the election site, so voters can learn about each candidate to make a more informed decision when casting their ballot.
